Namaste. Om. Shanti.
Let’s be real here, yoga words can sound a little weird if you’re new to the game.
The first time I heard a teacher talk about shanti in class, I thought she was a little shanti. And by shanti I mean crazy. Now, however, I am way more used to the lingo and it definitely helps me in yoga classes to not feel weirded out whenever the teacher says something in Sanskrit.
I just wanted to share this cute little article I found on Yoga Journal (I pretty much stalk their site because it is amazing, I am not even ashamed to admit this). Succint explanations of the five basic yoga terms that will probably be pretty helpful to know 🙂
I personally quite like this version of Namaste: (Image from here:http://spirituallyfityoga.com/2014/09/17/the-light-in-me-thinks-the-light-in-you-is-freaking-awesome-namaste/ )
Did you know what these words meant?– I don’t think I realized what any of them meant until about five years in to my practice 🙂
